|lys327||I will post pics later, i have a tj and taped off the raised part of the hood and painted it flat black. it took a few beers and viola it was done. i made sure to use two good coats of primer. i also lightly sanded the area to help the paint stick better. i masked the area off and sprayed away with rattle can. it has been over a year to date and still holding good. i live in ohio so its subject to the best of weather here. lol. i am painting the grill once it warms up a bit. the best way to paint plastic is scuff it up with sand paper and use spray cans designed for plastic.|

I just masked everything off.
As for the chrome, once upon a time I built a couple of sport trucks and when I would color match the grills I would use a razor to make a small cut for a starting point and then take it to the car wash and blast off the rest with the high pressure water. All you need is a spot to allow the water to get under the chrome and it will just flake off from there. Hope this makes sense.

|DANGItsVictor||Should I pull the grill off or just mask really well? I think sanding it would be much easier if I took it off...|

|krisbman||FYI, unless you completely strip the chrome off nothing will permanently adhere to it.|
